Subject: Re: Near Rome
I believe Paolo means the Castelli Romani area, the same area Peter mentions with Grottaferrata, Albano, Castelgandolfo, Marino, and other towns. After remembering these I agree that they're probably a better choice than Tarquinia. It's been too long for me to remember the difference between the Castelli towns, but Albano is probably best situated for the airport drive: just be sure you don't go to Ciampino airport since you drive right by it! One Web site about the area is http://www.initaly.com/regions/latium/castelli.htm .
